of minutes from last meeting
Stahl indicated that Cindy Wickizer took the minutes on his behalf at the last meeting.
Cindy reported to Rick that she has been unable to locate these minutes. Therefore,
there are no minutes to be approved. The membership did not object.
Rick Stahl reported that after paying the expenses from the 4/3/04 show there
was a balance in the checking account of $19.17 This balance did not include
the $400 in receipts from the 4/3/04 show and the approximate $100 still to be submitted to the Treasurer from Soni Jager
for the 3/04 show.
He also reported that after several audits of the checking account, the bank
statement reflects $20 more than the book balance.
He then indicated he had the necessary paperwork to change the authorized signers
for the checking account once the new treasurer is elected. Until this paperwork
is finalized, Rick will continue to maintain the checking account.
Nothing to report at this time.
It was reported that the Mini Rex sanctions are set except for the Monroe
and Bremerton shows. These will be
done shortly. The ARBA and Oregon
sanctions are in good order.
